he is confirmed? and final act, for now at least. it's hillary clinton's last day at the state department. >> so these last days have been bittersweet for me. but this opportunity that i have here before you gives me some time to reflect on the distance that weave traveled and to take stock of what we've done and what is left to do. >> and as she leaves the state department this afternoon, john kerry will arrive to be sworn in by justice alina keggen, and nor sentimental sendoff. 30 rock ends its seven-year run with lots of laughs and familiar faces. >> looked like another cold one in the midwest. >> bundle up, everyone. if you can, get hit by a car. >> according to the national weather service, you should, and i quote, leave work, get in your purpose bentley and be home with your sharks. >> if the democratic party controlled congress, i would see to it that he was punished in the worst way possible by having to come down here and listen to us. >> the show earned 14 emmys, had countless guest star appearances, some famous, and some not so famous. good day. i'm andrea mitchell.

. john kerry, a big change from hillary clinton. not so much in policy, but in sort of direction, stature, coming from the senate more so than from the political world. he has come from a world of foreign policy. will the white house be running the show? >> the secretary of state is superbly well qualified. he spent nearly 29 years in the senate. always a member of the foreign relations committee. he has been a life-long student of foreign affairs after living with his parents in germany after the second world war. he is remarkably well connected to international leaders, and just knows these issues front wards and backwards. i think he is well prepared. you notice, andrea, that he called two sets of leaders over the weekend. many middle east leaders and also asian leaders. he is focused on those two regions. that's where he is going to be test veried early on. >> other secretaries of state have tried to engage much more verying russly, many of the, than hillary clinton did, in the northeast diploma as where i. she, of course, had the challenge of the arab spring, and that sidetracked a l

of the senate, well, ted cruise is jim demint 2.30 or 3 had the 0. we saw in the hearing with secretary clinton, we saw in the confirmation hearings with chuck hagel that cruise was by far the most prosecutorial, the most aggressive of the questioners of both of those folks, and he is someone who makes no bones about his -- both his ambition and his willingness to buck how the senate is supposed to work. we're going to hear more from him before we hear less. >> you know, the way the senate is supposed to work is that you don't ask a question about the friends of hamas until you check out whether there is even such an organization as the friends of hamas. just saying. margaret, could marco rubio and the foreign trip. he has credentials and has given foreign policy speeches. here he was with king abdullah. he was in israel and had a press conference there, met with netanyahu. he is really -- there he is with shimon peres. there is quite a lot of activity by marco rubio, even since the state of the union water episode. >> well, he has now checked his foreign policy box. you'll remember these are n

assistant to president obama and adviser to hillary clinton and is msnbc diplomacy analyst. great to see you. you've spent so much time on this never ending mission of middle east peace. john kerry wants to tackle it, the president is going it tackle it early on. what is the cost benefit analysis for what can be accomplished now? >> i don't think the expectations are very high in terms of the president going out now and trying to produce something p i think what he's trying to do is send a signal that this is an issue that we care about, the secretary of state, john kerry, will be working on it. this is not going to be something that we ignore, but i think it's also going to be put into context. there are an enormous array of issues insyria, egypt. so i think his going to israel to seet see the pld and presided king ever jordan, it allows him to talk about although issues. >> how much does the past tension with netanyahu play here or is this netanyahu weakened by his own smaller than anticipated re-election margin? does he need president obama to a certain extent to validate himself as one w

skism exposed in recent weeks where leon panetta confirmed that he and hillary clinton and others and the chairman of the joint chiefs were at some point in favor of arming the rebels more to the point that the white house disagreed. what -- where do you think we can go forward now? we're approaching the second anniversary in syria. 70,000 reported dead. and the fear that if you arm the rebels that gets into the wrong hands because of the increasing al qaeda and radical and iranian influence within syria so what does a new secretary of state do? >> andrea, i do think that the secretary of state kerry is right to try to go back at this problem and see if the united states can piece together a stronger alliance of countries to help the syrian resistance inside syria because that's all we've got to go on right now. assad will not stay in power forever, but he happens to be strong enough to hold on to power for the foreseeable future, for many months to come. secretary kerry has a tall task ahead of him. the united states government is going to have to ask themselves, and i'm sure the

of that will conversation as well, and clinton won the pennsylvania primary. guns are part of a culture in new york, in new hampshire, in maine where the nra is going after susan collins in part of their advertising. it's a hard vote for members of congress. >> thank you very much. thanks to the washington post and roy montgomery and kneea malika. thank you very much. >> joining me now is maryland congressman chris van holland, the ranking member on the house budget committee and a member of the democratic steering committee that is going to hold a hearing this afternoon "hearing" on sequestration. thanks for being with us. >> it's good to be where you. >> you're not in the majority. you can't schedule a hearing. this is kind of a forum. is that a fair characterization? >> that's right, andrea. yeah. we wish that our republican colleagues would hold an official hearing to understand the terrible consequences of the sequester. it's the biggest consequence being that according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office we will lose 750,000 american jobs, in addition to all the other disrupgs at airports

change in russia's policy? >> well, i think that one has to look back and remember that hillary clinton had exactly the same experience with the rebels in libya. there was a period of time where the rebels used every meeting as a potential negotiating ploy for what they wanted to extract from britain, france, and the united states, and you also have, i would say, greater diversity in the syrian opposition and more inconsistencies in the broad syrian opposition than you even had in libya. libya was not great. what we're seeing is standard fare. it's not anything unusual. i think where it goes is that john kerry is going to go in and, you know, basically offer a lot of resolve, perhaps more posturing, but the syrian knot continues to be something that i think that the president wants to remain from being deeply engaged in, and i don't think he is going to turn the switch on for heavy arms transfers to the opposition, so i suspect more of the same with a little bit more toughing rhetoric that assad needs to leave, but when it comes to what the syrian rebels most want, nothing really new. >

term. wait and see what happens. now -- >> you were staying that hillary clinton, leon panetta both wanted to arm the syrian rebel wrshz. >> arm some of them. >> the president vetoed it. you think he is telegraphing something. >> i think he thinks he is telegraphing something. i think he may think he has more running room than he has. we've seen that the white house really controls foreign policy more than the state department. hillary clinton didn't challenge that. she proposed and then the fact that she was against the policy didn't come out until leon panetta hearing at the end after she had left office. she kept her disagreements very, very private. this question is whether john kerry will have the flexibility and the authority to recommend changes. >> you said russian -- what specifically? >> kerry promised he would bring this up, and baskly they want to lift the ban. vladimir putin has put a ban on adoptions by american families. they do have their complaints. there have been some terrible cases, most recently one in texas, where adopted russian children have been either abuse

are arguing we had to rethink this. hillary clinton and leon panetta and chairman dempsey and others argued and the president rejected it. >> that's the governoring reality. john kerry wants to do x, y and z but he works for the president now. i don't think you are going to see that much different. you are going to see the seron rebels getting something from america where they used to get nothing. it's not necessarily going to change the calculus. >> it's going to be more money and through non-governmental organizations. >> the other interesting question is, is it too late to affect the make up of the opposition? the islamists, the al qaeda affiliated groups have been getting lot of weapons through turkey, through saudi arabia. they are very powerful in that coalition. we spent two years not supporting the sort of people we would like to see take over syria. so, it might be too late on that front as well. >> we saw the opposition leaders know they have a lot of leverage. they said they weren't going to show up. kerry called them and said show up, i'll have something for you. it's something

no conversation with secretary clinton with senator panetta and the joint chiefs chair. part of what the two gentlemen who were testifying tried to lay out is that issue of time and distance. a lot of this is about trying to make changes for the future and you've got secretary panetta talking about how they are going to try to reposition some things. in north africa they say they have gaps in intelligence. it was really exposing those flaws. what was new and i think very compelling today was this focus on what did the president know and why did he apparently not show more interest and certainly secretary panetta fought back to say he was confident the president was very concerned, but there was not that communication during the attack. >> steve, that does seem to be a political point that the republicans have been making. they tried very early on to say why wasn't the white house more involved in this, and what panetta was saying was that that's what you have a national security advisor and chief of staff and having been a chief of staff, said in the middle of the night when an operation is

clinton used to do state of the unions. i want to do this, i want to do this. a series of smaller issues in a large framework, if you got it all would be a big change, but small things that he wants to get done in a larger context. but, you know, this speech is going to be remembered for the last ten minutes. and i'll tell you, you just can't help -- you watch him -- his ability -- i don't think people understand how hard it is to get members of congress. even on the half of them who agree with you as a sitting president, to act like an audience in a congregation. or act like an audience in a campaign rally. they lived the moment. when i saw jeff sessions standing up clapping and looking for the 102-year-old woman up there. you thought, boy, they all bought into the moment. that's something -- it's a nice moment for washington. >> although john boehner did not get up for the 102-year-old woman. >> no, but he got up or other things too. please, it's at the end of the speech. >> what about marco rubio, there's been a lot of nitpicking. overall, it's a very hard job to give the response, th

we know about warning secretary clinton and warning secretary panetta have been given about knott africa. it seems small potatoes. it seems as sort of silly as going after president bush. you know, at some point you are, like, okay, we understand you're upset at the moment, and you didn't think at the moment they handled it right, but we're in another place right now. this is like a whole other argument. ultimately john mccain did some straight talk yesterday. he said what this is really about. this is about -- this is personal. this is about hagel. what i find interesting, it was funny to hear john mccain say you are so anti-bush, and i wonder if there are a bunch of bush first term folks saying you remember a republican senator who used to say some anti-bush things. >> and just a quick note, chris calizza, the fact that frank -- what people expected him to do, which was to step down, he is the last world war ii veteran -- >> 89. >> 89 years old. as kelly points out. cory booker's presumptions, some some would say certainly latuenberg camp to presume that will he is -- is cory bo

clinton's golfing attire and some of the other interesting presidential golf partners. what's going on there because i saw a protest from the white house correspondents association against the fact that they would completely shut down and that the travel pool, the group which you know better than anyone, goes with the president and gets that moment or two, a quick picture, has had no visible sighting of the president for the last two and a half days. >> right. well, what happened yesterday, andrea, is that a reporter with golf digest was the first person to tweet out the president was, in fact, golfing with tiger woods. the number two golfer in the world. of course, white house reporters pounced, wanted to be able to confirm that. we didn't get confirmation from the white house until several hours later. as you point out, the republicans who generally travel with the president, the "pool reporters" weren't given access to any pictures or any footage of that game, so the white house press corps association did say that they would ultimately like more access. we did get a reaction fro
